Discover Who We Are

World Vision is a global community of millions of people, working together for one purpose: to change the lives of vulnerable children.

Our supporters, partners and staff join forces with communities on the ground to help children enjoy good health, be educated for life and participate in shaping the future of their community and themselves.

Together we share proven, world-class development methods to bring food, water, education and economic change. By working with communities to protect children from violence and neglect, caring for them in emergencies and challenging everyday injustice, we enable self- sufficient communities to achieve real, lasting change.

The more of us there are, the stronger we become and the bigger the impact will be. Join us.

What We Do

We work in partnership with communities to create sustainable change through long-term programs designed to address the root causes of poverty.

We serve to protect children by creating safe, supportive and healthy environments for children to thrive in.

We have been working in Cambodia for over 40 years, in that time we have gained in depth knowledge about attitudes towards education, health and child protection. That is why we work together with community members to shift perceptions through education and training workshops embedded in long-term programs to achieve lasting change.

We partner with already established community groups, service providers and government initiatives to integrate our programs and achieve effective results for the children we serve including their families and communities.

We have three core programs; integrated nutrition, education and protection and participation which work together to achieve holistic developmental change.

How We Work

We use a holistic approach to development ensuring we tackle root causes to lift children, their families and community out of poverty. We do this in partnership with local stakeholders in order for children to live life in all its fullness.

Working with communities

To achieve ultimate child wellbeing we need to work within the context of that child’s life, because we know child well-being is tied to living in a safe household, healthy environment and supportive community. So we approach development holistically.

We work with communities to establish priorities and the time it will take to achieve their goals. Addressing the root causes of poverty involves building trusting relationships, breaking mindsets, changing attitudes, and providing tools, skills, and training – all of which requires a great investment of time.

Once we engage with a community we are committing to long-term programs which aim to build capacity in the community so there is little reliance on World Vision. Programs can last between 5-15 years depending on the community. Before we work with a community, we sit and listen to them to determine how to best approach the issues.
